White & Blue Holiday House

Unfortunately, my short holiday is over. It felt quick but it’s great to disconnect from London life for a few days.

I decided to share this lovely house that I stay at almost every year. It’s located on a little village north from Valencia on the Costa del Azhar.

I decided to share this lovely house that I stay at almost every year. It’s located on a little village north from Valencia on the Costa del Azhar.

It’s a family house with all the typical Spanish characters and colours. The white walls are interrupted just by the green windows shutters and are surrounded by Pine trees and Mediterranean plants.

The light feature in the photo below is just a pair of roof tiles mounted on the wall – A nice and simple detail using local materials to get a modern detail.

The Master Bedroom is on the top floor and has a lovely round terrace outside with a fantastic view of the see and the green trees from the garden and pool below.

The colour palette for the house is white and blue. The art on the wall comes from Italian artist, the vase and the rustic side tables were bought in some local shops

In front of the bed there’s this lovely niche with curvy lines. Blue vases are used to decorate this little space. The African wood sculpture was bought at a local market.

The Bathroom is a triumph of Blue & White using local azulejos ceramic .

Blue and White Azulejos had also been used for decorating the staircase:

One of the two double bedroom has got and entire wall decorated with hats.  Its a great and simple idea, and also a cheap one! It’s also practical during long hot Spanish summer days.

The rest of the bedroom is blue and white. The vase is from one of the local ceramic manufacturers. The sideboard and the bedside table are second-hand ones that had been restored and painted white by the owners.

The decoration are local and simple: stones and shells picked up from the beach, stored on glass vases, and some wood pieces bought at a local market:

Hope you enjoyed this first set. It was nice to get back on my camera after a while and take some nice pictures of this house I love so much.

I will post more in the next few days. Please leave me a comment, I’d love to hear what you think.
